Getting To Know You - Aaron Fuller

As 2016 prospects begin to show up at Montlake and fall into the media blackout abyss until they set foot on the field, we begin our series where we get to know the players a little better with questions not necessarily geared to just the football field...

Height and Weight? - "About 6-foot, 185."
What have you been up to this offseason? - "Mainly just putting a little more weight on because the people I go against are surely going to be a lot bigger than I have been. So just working and getting a little faster."
How many offers did you have? - "10."
Besides Washington, what other schools were after you really hard? - "Probably Houston, Northwestern, Iowa, and SMU."
If not Washington, then what school would you have chosen? - "Either Houston or Northwestern. My quarterback that I had in high school went to Houston. I had a good relationship with him. I was thinking about going up there but the area wasn't too nice."
Why did you choose Washington? - "One, I just wanted to get away. Plus, the facilities are nice. I love Coach Petersen. That man is one of the main reasons I went there. He's a good guy. Seems like a great coach. And all the potential it had there too. It was a good fit for me."
What did you enjoy about the recruiting process? - "Just going to all the campuses and checking it out, because I haven't really been to too many places outside of Texas. So going out and seeing all these colleges."
What did you hate about the recruiting process? - "Not too much. It was pretty much fun. There were a lot of phone calls and stuff like that. It got to be a little bit of a hassle, but overall it wasn't too bad."
Funny story/anecdote from the recruiting process? - "Nah."
What are you going to miss when you enroll at UW? - "I'll miss my family and friends and stuff like that, and the hype around Texas football. That's about it."
Assuming you have talked with the UW staff, what have they said about where you'll play once you get to UW? - "They started out saying that I'll probably begin as a slot receiver, and then do some stuff on special teams, stuff like that. We talked about redshirting a little bit but they said it depends on how I do in the summer, see if I'll be playing or redshirting."
What kind of car do you drive? - "I recently bought a Volkswagen Passat."
What's your favorite movie? - "Ooh...I'll go with Tarzan. I'm a Tarzan fan. The animated one. I heard about the new one coming out but I don't think it'll top the animated one. But we'll see."
What's your favorite CD/music on your ipod right now? - "I'm a Kendrick Lamar fan. I like just nice, chill rap."
What's your favorite kind of food? - "I'm going to go with steak, medium-well, with some mashed potatoes, maybe some macaroni. I like it all." Top Stories
